Teeth grinding (bruxism)

Bruxism is subconscious grinding of teeth. It can cause many oral health problems. Generally, a person may grit or grind their teeth while they’re asleep or when clenching their jaw.

Symptoms:

  • Wearing and abrasion of teeth
  • Headaches
  • Pain in face muscles
  • Jaw and TMJ pain upon waking

Causes:

There is not much information on the subject, but anxiety seems to trigger bruxism, which can lead to teeth misalignment or malocclusion.
